Good morning! Hard to believe that Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Well maybe it's not that close unless you're a card maker and need to start making your cards! This card is made using only die cuts. As an added bonus, since I cut the pieces out of the various colors of card stock (rather than all white and coloring the pieces) I have enough leftover to make another card in the reverse colors!
this card I picked the patterned paper first and chose colors based off
of it. I cut an A2 card base from Very Vanilla card stock, a panel for
the front that is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches from the paper and a panel from
Rose Red card stock using the largest of the Nested Stitched Eyelet
used snail adhesive to glue the eyelet panel to the patterned piece. I
placed it at an angle that I felt was pleasing, then used my paper
trimmer to cut the overage.
easy to do. I have also done this with scissors if the amount of paper
hanging off the sides is small. However, I'm not that good with
keeping the cut perfectly straight so I find the paper trimmer works
best for me.
cut the mail box and letters from Love Letters and the postmark and
stamp from Love Postage using various colors that matched my patterned
played around with placement before gluing down. I did cut off the
branches from the mailbox post and added another letter and some small
hearts (not shown in this photo).
Dies used: Cottage Cutz Love Postage, Love Letters and Nested Stitched Eyelet
